I'm working on this pattern for a sweater for my pup, and I got to the leg shaping section. It says to work each section separately. How do I go from section to section without the string stretching across the gap?

I haven't looked at the pattern too thoroughly but most of the time you work separate parts (especially legs, arms, etc), you would have to rejoin the yarn.  Go ahead and work whichever part is easiest, bind off, cut the yarn and then rejoin back on the needles at your next section.

The pattern says :

"Leg shaping - [WS] Work each section separately"

So you leave the yarn attached on the last section and use a new yarn end for the other 2. You can finish each section separately, then you'll cast on new stitches to work completely across the row again to finish.
